ITEM#: 3561255

“It’s a wonderful, splendid book—a book that should be read by every American, student or otherwise, who wants to understand his country, its true history, and its hope for the future.” —Howard Fast, author ofSpartacus and The Immigrants

“[It] should be required reading.” —Eric Foner, New York Times Book Review

Library Journal calls Howard Zinn’s iconic A People's History of the United States “a brilliant and moving history of the American people from the point of view of those…whose plight has been largely omitted from most histories.” Packed with vivid details and telling quotations, Zinn’s award-winning classic continues to revolutionize the way American history is taught and remembered. Frequent appearances in popular media such asThe Sopranos, The Simpsons, Good Will Hunting, and the History Channel documentaryThe People Speak testify to Zinn’s ability to bridge the generation gap with enduring insights into the birth, development, and destiny of the nation.

    Not all history is written by the winners. This book was written by, for and about the losers. You won't hear these truths in school. Only for the open-minded willing to really think about the effects of power and conquest.

    If you feel like taking your head outta your butt and learning just how screwed up our so-called heroic founding fathers were... read this. It is important to get this point of view because most of us are the little guy who will be crapped on by the country self-proclaimed elites.
